The perfect complement to your wedding updo? A pair of statement earrings, of course. Many brides favor chandeliers, but ear cuffs are having a moment. The trick to rocking the edgy trend is to keep them sparkly and formal. Here's how to try the look five different ways:

1. Make a statement
Try this ear cuff on the top of your ear with a side swept hairstyle or up-do. Wear it alone or pair it with a simple diamond stud on the other ear. Rhinestone Leaf Ear Cuff, $48, Guess by Marciano
